    Nice looking setup. It looks like you have a big room to match those amps. I bet it sounds great.

    Yes, I've been a fan of US gear for some while. Living up here in the far North I'm 5 hours away from the nearest dealer so all my stuff is bought on line. US companies cater for on line buyers I've found and the prices are good. I have other US stuff like a 470c class D amp from the US company Class D inc. This is a very good product with high power and it drives stronger than the Monarchy's.

    Until recently I had a 6 shelf rack which was sited next to the TV. I had to use 6metre speaker cables and they looked a mess. I have rearranged to this set up, now with 4 metre XLR interconnects and short speaker cables. Neater and sounds better too.
    We have lived in this house for 10 years but as you can see some WAF does apply in this residence! Some hifi kit causes more problems here. For instance interconnect in knicker draws is a hanging offense

    Nice, neat system you have there Michael.

    However, since you are already using balanced line interconnects to the power amps, why don't you move each monoblock power amp to be adjacent to the speaker? That way you can reduce the length of the speaker cable to be much less than a metre (maybe as short as 6"). That is what I have done.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
